Chinese for Affirmative Action

A nonprofit organization

$6,095 raised by 38 donors


Since the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, misunderstanding and uncertainty about this virus has led to fear and hate causing racial profiling and discrimination against our communities. 

At Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA) we continue to fight back. Our response to anti-asian racism and xenophobia include:

  • With A3PCON and the Asian American Studies Department at SF State University, CAA has launched Stop AAPI Hate Reporting Center to collect accounts of anti-Asian hate incidents. 
  • Partnering with congressional, state, and local elected officials and government agencies to address racial profiling and attacks and identify community-driven interventions and solutions.
  • Advocating for local, state, and federal public health and economic resources to address the unique harms being experienced by Asian Americans and Pacific islanders, especially our low-income wage workers and small business communities.
  • Fielding daily Chinese and English language media requests to raise awareness and educate the community. See CAA's "In The News" web page for more. 

If you are able, we ask that you consider making a contribution to help CAA maintain and expand crucial resources during this urgent time. 


Since 1969, CAA has served as a progressive voice in and on behalf of the broader Asian Pacific Islander (API) community.
50 years of civil rights advocacy, direct community service, and coalition building has inspired a heightened sense of purpose in a time where it is needed more than ever. We enact systemic change by advocating for racial justice and immigrant rights, language diversity, and cultivating leadership in our most vulnerable populations.

AAPI, immigrant, working class communities are under attack and CAA is vigilant in our efforts to bring the movement forward in waging positive and lasting change.
